grandchildren. they really are america's children. jack pinto, the same age of my grandson, he was a huge new york giants' fan and today was buried in a giants' jersey. and noah pozner, who is also 6, whose best friend, twin sister, avielle, who was in another class and survived. though, i'm sure she felt she lost her other self. these children were truly innocent. mostly knowing in their short lives just joy and little about the brutality in this world until they experienced it firsthand on friday. what gives us hope was there was also love and bravery in the educators and first responders who acted. we will remember them and pledge that their spirit will be our guiding light to act, to protect our children and our community. i yield back. mr. murphy: i thank the gentlewoman. at this time, i yield 1:30 to the gentleman from florida, mr. deutch. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. deutch: i thank my friend from connecticut. i rise tonight to join all americans in grieving for the innocent children and brave adults slaughtered at sandy hook elementary school last friday.
